Competition Brief

We were set a competition brief in uni a week or two ago, which isn't due to be handed in to the client until April sometime, but for uni we had two weeks to produce two outcomes for our lecturers and peers to asses. We were asked to design two book covers for a Puffin book and Penguin Book, the books being Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Patrick Suskind's 'Perfume the story of a murderer'. I know there is a spelling mistake in the authors name and the image desperately needs to be re-done on the 'Perfume' cover, plus the typeography on the 'Alice's adventure in wonderland' cover needs to be completely re-done..! Anyway here is what I came up with within the two weeks we had. I shall update them over the christmas holidays make ammendments to get them all sorted nice and early for the real hand-in in April, but for now you can take a look at my first designs bellow.

Individual Print Work Outcome

Here is my final design for the individual print work we were set as part of the Sustainable:Me brief. It has very close links with our group print work and uses similar methods to raise awareness of sustainability to working professionals out there on the market. If the brief was not hypothetical and was to be a real live project, I would distribute my design to working professionals via a mailing service.

This piece of design is targeted at working design professionls in industry and would be made using 100% recycled paper, soy inks that use much less petroleum this being a whole lot better for our environment. It has no bleed so there would be no inks wasted in the process of making it, and finaly the deisgn packages itself by using seven folds and two tucks to create an envelope..hence the text 'this is not your ordinary envelope' on the outside. The inside of the design contains the title 'thinking is a renewable resource' a quick explanation of what the design is about and then it carries on to raise awareness of myths about recycled products that may have detered designers from using them in the past.

I hope you like my design!
